Lawmakers Attempt To Ban 3D Printed Guns On National Security Grounds
The Undetectable Firearms Act was passed in 1988 and updated in 1998 and again in 2003. The Act demands that all plastic firearms have enough metal components to trigger a metal detector.
The Act expires at midnight on December 9th 2013.
Lawmakers are seeking to make plastic 3D printed weapons a listed national security threat, which opens the door for legislation and control of such weapons.
